A good start to a series. This really does a nice job of setting up the world. I like the way they wove real history in with the Wild Cards stories. It added a certain level of depth to them. As with any shared-world, the stories can vary in quality, but overall things were pretty good. My only word of advice to anyone unfamiliar with Wild Cards, is that even though the subject is superheroes, a few of the stories deal with some very mature themes. I don't say that as a criticism. I DON'T think superheroes need to ONLY be for kids, but there are some who would see superheroes and immediately think -- 'my kid would like this'.

I'm really looking forward to reading all of the Wild Card books now.
